See large scale models of U.S. national landmarks made of LEGOs at the LEGO Americana Roadshow, now in Colorado. It’s impressive!

Roadshow Scavenger Hunt
Get a map for an informative LEGO Americana Roadshow scavenger hunt just for kids. Answer questions about each landmark. Then, turn in the completed hunt to the LEGO store for a poster prize.
I learned quickly that my kids needed some help with map skills– at least orienting the map. Really? So that was an additional teaching opportunity (besides the landmark information.)
Each landmark gives not only the information about the landmark, but also information about the LEGO structure such as the scale and number of bricks. I loved that!
Bigger than my kids!
The Liberty Bell was probably my personal favorite because it was a 1:1 scale. It was SO cool.
I also really loved these waving flags at the Washington Monument. Not quite like being there but still fun to see.
